Christmas Money Goodies!

Along with the great gifts I received for Christmas, I also received some cash and gift cards, which is always great! That means I treated myself to several gaming related goodies. Did you really think I would spend that money on anything else? 😉 Fine… I did buy some photo bins for my 5 billion photos I have printed out… anyway! On to the goodies!

The day after Christmas, my husband and I ventured out to GameStop and Target and came home with several goodies!


Quantum Break was my husband’s choice, but all the rest were mine hee hee 🙂 They were pretty good deals… Yo Kai Watch 2 was only $11 (Target had it in their clearance section), Summon Night 6 was I think $20, and The Walking Dead was free because GameStop was running a promotion! Sweet! And I’ve had my eye on that Goomba amiibo since it came out!

Side note: the back cover of Summon Night 6 is funny as hell, and the game cartridge has the cutest little character on it! I’m not familiar with this series, but did some research on it and seems like it’ll be fun.

Then the next day my husband ventured to a different Target and found THIS:


An SNES Classic in the wild?! For a reasonable price?! I could hardly believe my eyes. I’m so happy to have one!


In a subsequent trip to Target and Cybertron (a local video game store I’ve mentioned before in other posts) we bought this stuff:


The Zelda case is awesome and holds my New 2DS XL perfectly, so I love it! I took a chance on Tengen for the Sega Genesis because I’ve never heard of it before, but it seems like a fun little puzzler.

I got myself a couple game guides off of Amazon:


Along with some more Animal Crossing cards. Hey, I only needed to spend only 65 FUCKING CENTS to get free shipping, so I picked some AC cards to throw me over 😉


Then I bought 2 games that made me very happy:


New Kirby releases are always must- haves for me, and I love Mario Party games even though they are often infuriating!

Then just today, I bought these two games at Best Buy:

The Longest 5 Minutes definitely has an interesting premise: you actually start the game at the final boss, but you lose your memory and have to piece everything back together to figure out who you are and what you’re doing! I’ve been wanting Radiant Historia for a little while and I didn’t realize it was out, so I was happy to pick it up!

I also downloaded Kirby’s Blowout Blast on my 3DS, which is ridiculously cute and fun!

On my 2DS XL I wasted no time starting my SNES/ Game Boy collection, as I bought:

Donkey Kong Country
Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy’s Kong Quest
Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong’s Double Trouble
Donkey Kong Land
Donkey Kong Land 2
Donkey Kong Land 3
Pokemon Trading Card Game
Super Mario Kart

Horray for gift cards! 🙂 Now hopefully I can actually play all these games…

  1. Wow, what a haul! Some great stuff in there that I definitely want to pick up at some point. I have a friend who’s big into Summon Night who assures me that’s a good ‘un, so hope you enjoy. Some real legends of localisation worked on that one!

    Glad you managed to find a SNES Classic too, I got one at launch (the UK version, anyway, ’cause I’m a Brit, also colourful buttons for the win) and it’s a lovely little thing. Many hours of gaming fun to be had there; I’ve barely scratched the surface of a lot of the included games!

    1. Thanks! I’m pretty excited about all of it! Oh, that’s awesome to hear about Summon Night! Sometimes I’ll just take a chance on games I’m unfamiliar with and I’m often pleasantly surprised, so I’m glad to hear your friend likes it!

      I’m so happy about finding an SNES Classic! I figured my chance to get one had passed, but since we’ve gotten it, I’ve seen it in stores again. To me that’s a good thing because it means there are finally more available! I can’t wait to dive into some of the games I never played during my childhood. Also, I have to say the UK version is better because of the colorful buttons! 😉

  2. What a sweet haul! I think I have Radiant Historia on my backlog (or maybe it was one of the games I bought from Cheap Boss Attack. I can’t remember!). Money is the one gift that never gets returned :p I thought about picking up the SNES Classic, especially since I heard of a way to add more games to it, but I restrained myself in Target…that day lol.
